MADISON -- A Madison entrepreneur took a deal with two of the investors on Shark Tank Sunday night.

The Kombucha Shop was founded in 2013, when Field decided to create a home-brewing kombucha kit according to WISC-TV

Sully has been an avid lover of kombucha for years. Grady's still warming up to it, but they both loved our new "pet" Scoby and couldn't wait to start brewing our first batch!

The business owner took an investment deal with Sara Blakely and Barbara Corcoran for $200,000 and a $150,000 line of credit, only losing 10 percent of her company according to WKOW. 

Field discovered her passion for kombucha while working as a culinary and nutrition educator for low-income families in Washington, DC, her website says.  What began as a side hobby quickly blossomed into one of largest and most reliable home brew kombucha companies.
